I’ll be trying ESO this weekend for the first time so was pretty happy to see you were doing these in case I decide to go with it.

This is probably not the best place to ask, but curious if you had plans on Wildstar? I’m on the fence on that one myself.

I am in beta for both and Wildstar is easily 30 times better than ESO, you should dump ESO for Wildstar.

Wildstar = Wow 2.0 and yes i have played numerous beta’s for both. ESO caters to a specific market.

If you had played Wildstar AT ALL you would not call it WoW 2.0. The only thing remotely similar to WoW is the graphics style.

Besides, WoW = Everquest 2.0 anyways, so you should have called Wildstar Everquest 3.0.

Oh well if you said end of discussion then you automatically win the argument and end the discussion. I wish I would have known that years ago…so many arguments I could have won…

Been checking out ESO myself. Kinda frustrated with the dead end bugged quests that haven’t been fixed from one beta to the next…but really appreciate the guides. Thanks!

For the beta this weekend, they are using an older build. They are mainly focusing on their server hardware.

Just makes me a little nervous since the game comes out in less than a month. I understand we are publicly testing the server hardware…but they are showing off their product to the world of mmo players also, and they aren’t putting out a very clean product. I can honestly say I would not pay $15/month at launch for this game. Most likely going to wait a few months. Which is a shame, because this has loads of potential.

Don’t pay it then, but these are stress tests understand the Term Stress!!!. Designed to stress the system this wasn’t content testing in anyway. People who don’t get that often make that assumption I’ve seen fixes and they are fixed. And a lot quicker then games in the mmo world fix their bugs today i might add.

I have always enjoyed your guides, so I am really looking forward to seeing you in game. Please stay in Tamriel and keep up the good work!

Good job. Keep on doing!
I will look forward for more Skyshard maps from you, and I would be even more interested on some maps with Lore books location.

awesome! I was about to check to see if you were doing ESO, and looks like you are….Donations to follow after this post….

Honestly I personally dont think ESO will be F2P in a few months.. maybe more like 9 months to a year.. I doubt they will release it as F2P that soon after launch..

Pre-ordered the Imperial Edition and cannot wait for March 30 so I can begin to play. Still unsure what class I’ll play first. Likely a Dark Elf Sorcerer, we’ll see.

Dulfy!!! I have a question. Is there a way to make your map display the various dungeons and towns you’ve discovered? For some reason mine only shows the pvp objects and none of the PVE markers ie: dungeons, towns, points of interest.
